MADE: Rebel Nell
In this third installment of the MADE series, REDFworkshop.org profiles Detroit social enterprise Rebel Nell, their unique approach to employment and their creative vision and inspiration. Rebel Nell creates jobs and jewelry to further their mission of employing women who need the job the most.
Rebel Nell employs, educates, and supports single mothers in their quest to become self-sufficient.
All of Rebel Nell’s jewelry is made from recycled Detroit graffiti after it falls onto the ground– Detroit art turned into Detroit jewelry made by Detroit people.
The MADE Factor:
Rebel Nell seeks to transform people the same way they transform graffiti paint into jewelry– hard work, creativity, and a little bit of polish.
